Anyone for tennis?...
Posted: 3/22/2016 2:42:11 PM
Firstly its hard to take a male player moaning that its unfair, or a female claiming it is fair when they are all on ridiculous money. But the 5/3 set thing is a point. It means women can play doubles if they want and earn even more ridiculous money.
I dont see the argument that the men attract the crowds as I think there are as many women players that id watch as men but apparently theres statistics to prove this.
The only thing I can think to even it out is for both men and women to play best of 3 sets up until the quarter finals then both play best of 5.

By the way whats happened to the forum? when I was on here about 3 years ago the whole first page would be full of threads people were posting on that day. Is it because you cant access the forum from the main site now?

If it stops perverts accessing kiddie porn


It hasn't got anything to do with that. Its more to do with your second point - stopping children watching adult porn.

Russell Brand. Does he have a point?
Posted: 11/26/2013 9:21:09 AM

I agree with him 100% about the fact it is a pointless waste of time voting for anyone. All you are doing is ensuring the lying, corrupt, self-serving politician you favour is chosen over someone else who is exactly the same type of person.


I wouldn't mind if they added a "none of the above" box, like in the Richard Prior film. This would have more impact than not voting. Maybe an organised movement for disenchanted people spoil their ballot paper to make a point.

New boyfriend seems to enjoy making me jealous?
Posted: 10/6/2013 2:37:51 PM

t's a classic tactic to keep you wrapped around his finger, make you jealous, make you compete for him (and you will).
A man seems more attractive if he makes women think other women want him.


Its true. He may be trying to show "pre selection"

Or he may just be a bit if a d1ck.

I wouldnt be too convinced that this proves he's likely to cheat as he'd be likely be far more discreet.

I think you would be better of asking if he see's you two as being exclusive.

Hopefully he's just being a d1ck and hopefully he stops it quickly.

I don't understand the 'too nice' line....
Posted: 5/14/2013 8:49:41 AM
While "too nice" will often be a polite way of letting someone down. Its also a very well known (to psycologists etc) factor that stops a LOT of people usually women from being interested in somone.
Basically one of the worst things a guy can do on a date (apparently im not an expert or I wouldnt be on here) is to be too nice. It means you are forgetable/bland.

Attraction - is this how it works ?
Posted: 4/29/2013 3:29:14 PM

Most couples I see seem matched, but I do see the odd seemingly major mismatch which has me wondering what else the lesser looking partner has that I'm not seeing. I also know some couples who started matched but one half has let themselves go, big time!


If I see a couple who aren't matched looks wise I usually think they probably didnt meet online.

Questioning the mentality of some on here
Posted: 4/11/2013 7:46:34 AM
Im suprised you're getting that many views as you havent got a photo up. Since I took mine down I rarely get a view. Which is what I expect. I think the last time someone viewed me Thatcher was, not only alive, she was still prime minister!

Thatcher is Dead
Posted: 4/10/2013 11:22:04 AM
There are two people who remind me of her very much. One being Dr Beeching. They both made decisions that destroyed whole communities as they both didnt see peoples lives as anything other than a balance sheet.
The other person is savile! Like thatcher you always knew he was a bit odd. But, in the way we were all suprised when we found out what he had been up to we also found out recently what she and her government did in the Hillsborough cover up.

I dont really see how anybody who is really aware of her part in Hillsborough can seriously defend her. I guess she felt she owed the police for helping her in the minors strike.

I dont buy into the crap about Britain was lucky to have her because we were the sick man of europe etc. Its called recession and no government of either colour has managed to stear Britain away from a world recession in history. And by the way we were still in it way into the eighties and we were in another one when she left office Thats why they kicked her out.

Old flames.... Never go back???
Posted: 3/18/2013 1:36:54 AM
think extremely carefully before you do this, OP


Thanks, but sadly its too late we met up the other night. I have a strong suspicion that for her it wasnt a date but an opportunity to get revenge. It would have been good advice though as I could have braced myself better.

And I think it was a case of the same problem getting in the way. I didnt at first because the first time I ended it and this time she as good as did by putting me through a date from hell. But thinking about it, things went wrong both times for the same reason. The first time I finished with her because she was a cow. And she ruined this date with negativity and spite because she is a cow.

Would still like to hear a good news story from someone though. The only one I can think of is the comedien John Bishop who got back with his wife after a fair while of seperation.

@ message 2&3. I spose you're right. You split up for a reason the first time so its a bit like groundhog day. But it is tempting.
@ message 4 What happened to the dog? did they shoot it?

Hello. I would be interested in your opinions and experiences if you ever went out again with an ex after you had split up, with the intention of trying to rekindle a romance.
Ive met back up with almost every girl i've had even a short relationship with. And its never worked. In fact its never even come close to working and you can usually tell very quickly that its a mistake.
So can it ever work. Or should you never go back?

How to progress after a disastrous date....
Posted: 3/17/2013 10:54:43 AM
Ii havent got a clue what this fellas reasons are. But there are a LOT of people on here with issues.

Sometimes it leads to confusion, hurt, waste of time. Sometimes its motivated by lack of confidence, spite, ego boost.

Internet dating isnt always a joy sadly.

Is Dating Harder For Men or Women?
Posted: 2/26/2013 2:07:00 PM

So maybe women get more messages than men but online dating isnt a 'message receiving comepetition'. Its about if any of the messages lead to anything meaninful. I dont see the point of getting loads messages


I agree. But have to admit when I havent had a message in a while I think it would be nice to get a message. Then when one arrives and its from someone you dont fancy and I think Id rather get none. And then theres the time waster messages which cheese me off the most!

She was a very pretty woman, and he probably felt he could never find a catch like her again, especially with a disability like his.


Have you not seen the photos of his ex's? They all look exactly like her, dont think he had much trouble pulling.

Advice needed please
Posted: 2/15/2013 9:32:06 AM

Us blokes get fed up of pervy messages and women wanting to get into our boxer shorts within a few messages..........some even lob their tits out !!

I must ask you OP ........are your messages those of a decent nature ?


Hahahahahahahahahahahaha....aaaaaaaaaahahahahahahaha.

I would say to anyone not having much luck on here that this place seems to run a bit hot and cold at times. Last year when I was trying I got a fair number of messages from genuine people who wanted to date. That was for about the first half of the year then from about july onwards the arse pretty much fell out and I hardly got one for months even with the same pics and profile,

Its a terrible, horrible moment but I dont think you really need to say much. Usually its obvious theres nothing happening so theres no need. It always feels awkward the next day too as your used to texting them and it suddenly stops and i feel guilty about that too.

Do you take this site seriously?
Posted: 2/5/2013 2:25:51 PM
If you take it seriously on here you could be disapointed very quickly. But while I know its best to take it with a pinch of salt I also think thats a lot of the problem. People not taking the idea of dating, and making the best of the site im sure leads to a half hearted/flakey attitude that leads to even more disapointment,and so the cycle continues.

I need help with Fitness
Posted: 1/18/2013 8:53:53 AM
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Yeah I agree with that too. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

If the fat round your middle is low enough a little work on your abs will be enough. (Just enough to fatigue them). If I was only doing one thing it would be-- lay on back put hands by your ears, bring right knee up and touch it with your left elbow then left knee/right elbow. Do 40 x 4 sets if you can.

But abs are mainly about a lck of fat than big stomach muscles.

If youre in reasonable shape now walking could be your best friend, an hour a day to get into your fat reserves.

The rest as has been said is genetics 4/6 or 8 pack.

The flirt option for men is go....or is it ?
Posted: 1/17/2013 1:50:05 PM
Cant see it being anything good. Its "meet me" again and everyone knows thats crap. It wiil do more harm than good imo. If someone sends a flirt and the woman getting it thinks why didnt he send a message instead of letting me do the hardwork and so ignores it. So thats it! no chance of ever meeting. But there may have been a chance of her sending a message to him of her own accord. Or she may have replied to a normal message.

Topless men
Posted: 1/8/2013 11:38:16 AM
I saw a picture recently on here of a woman near me and she had taken several pics of herself in the mirror and she wasnt wearing much in any of them. The thing is she was 42 and had the body of a 20 yr old. So im now thinking if you're a bit older and have a figure that people aren't expecting I reckon thats a good reason to do it, even though ive always thought it a bit naff.

I don't understand the 'too nice' line....
Posted: 1/7/2013 2:18:55 PM
I think the "nice" part of turning someone down is sometimes the bit to sweetent the pill. When someone lets another down they usually say something positive first. Usually "you're a lovely girl/guy but...."

Its pointless the dumped one getting mad as they dont think its the truth, as the dumper was only trying to break it gentlly.

As for being "too nice" we will never know what they meant. And thats probably a good thing. The truth may have been a lot harsher and done some damage. I believe sometimes not getting to the truth of why you were rejected is a blessing. As then you may try and learn from the rejection and change the way you are, when you really didnt need to as the next person may like you as you are.
However if you keep getting the same knock back maybe then its time for a little tweaking of your dating technique.

Contact History - what's yours?
Posted: 12/28/2012 12:45:01 PM
The main thing I have taken from this, having checked the people I have spoken to in the 2 yrs i've been active is how many are still looking. I think less than 10% have left and probably not all of them left because they had found someone.
Not very promising is it?

Seven Day NHS?
Posted: 12/20/2012 3:05:40 PM
Well I know quite a few widows and widowers who have horror stories about how their spouses died and are convinced they would still be alive if their doctors had been half way competant. And having heard what happened in these cases I cant disagree with them.

I would have thought running a hospital etc 7 days would make financial sense. More investment yes but cost efficiency and value for money would make it worth while.

I had a socialist upbringing. My dad was a shop steward and no one in my family has ever voted tory but lately i've been thinking perhaps the NHS should be privatised. It reminds me of the labour councils when I lived in south London in the 80's. You tend to get poor performance when theres no shareholders to crack the whip. Same with the BBC.

Seven Day NHS?
Posted: 12/20/2012 11:16:59 AM
My experience in the last few years is that the NHS is in a terrible terrible state. Im not saying there arent good things happening. But I fear for anyone in need.
In the old days I would have assumed it was under funding. But there is a lot of incompetence and the NHS seems to be run for the convenience of its staff first and foremost.

Gangnam Style

I think it has more to do with the dance but the music has grown on me.

Talking of the gangnam dance, check out the wavya version on youtube it is HOT. They are a Koreon dance group. Probably more for the lads though.

I'll look out for it, but not from Amazon.
Another Great British Company who don't subscribe to our culture of paying tax.
They are quite happy to use overseas cultures for that.


amazon is american owned.

North/South or city/town divide
Posted: 11/20/2012 12:17:33 PM
I used to house share with northerners in London and they said they struggled getting talking to women more in London clubs than up north. And it got worse the more trendy the venue. So a local pub would be not too bad but you could forget it in the Ministry of sound.

This sounds similar to the feature that allows you to view people that you have said yes to meeting and they have since viewed you back. Similar in that they are the people you are least likely to ever talk to never mind meet in both cases.
